Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Importance of Attending a Show: Part II

Althea - I feel even stronger today about what I wrote three years ago. Just look at the responses and multiple interpretations of what I wrote. The debate rages even harder today.

The funny thing is, I never intended on this being an exclusionary point. It actually is however. You went or you did not. So many people took this as an insult or a shot at those who did not get a chance to go, but that was never my point. My point had to do with understanding the culture at a show and how it relates today.

The Grateful Dead experience is the "IT" people are talking about. The experience is seeing them live. If you have done it, you understand. If you have not, you cannot fully understand what I mean.

It is that simple.
